Grief is emotional, not logical.
Did a death, divorce, or the end of a romantic relationship cause it? Or was it caused by any of the forty other losses that a person might experience such as moving, pet loss, or a change in finances? Regardless of the cause, you know how you feel and it probably isn’t good.
We aren’t going to tell you, “We know how you feel,” because we don’t. Neither does anyone else. What we will do is provide a safe environment where you will be given specific tools to help you recover from loss and ultimately lead a happier life.
Reviews for GRM Support Group
It has been a very eye opening experience!!! I was glad to learn I am not broken or damaged. I'm completely normal. We have been given misinformation our whole lives, and in just 8 weeks of true commitment to yourself, without quitting, because you want too! It's hard, but worth it! I was given the tools needed to clean out all the pain in my heart. That is not to say it won't come back or happen again, but NOW I have the ability too work through the anger, hurt and pain, and make more room in my heart for future love, joy, and happiness! I'm looking forward to the new memories I plan on making, and getting to know and like and accept the new me. I'm grateful for this amazing opportunity. I was given a life long gift, that I will treasure forever. Thank You, and God bless! Tammi Risse Successfully completed Grief Recovery Class 2019Participant in Huntington Beach, Ca03/26/2058
The program helped me deal more effectively with my loss than if I did nothing or joined another group. I learned to be a heart with two years. I learned that my friends, family, and acquaintances were getting tired of hearing about my loss and how I felt.And I was getting annoyed at what they were saying to me. I had a bond with the other women in the group. Will I ever see them again? Not likely as we didn't exchange phone numbers or email. And that is fine. It was a moment where we all felt a commonality. And then it was time to move on. The idea of an Alumni Group is appealing. I have one more very important loss to deal with and would like to do the process with other people using the Grief Recovery method. I also learned to be more effective when my friends and acquaintances experience loss in their lives. It would be great if everyone can have these lessons.

I thought that because I has intellectualized my mother's issues that caused her not to be there for me, and the fact that I had forgiven her; that I had done all that could be done here in this life. Writing the letter and saying good-bye made a significant difference. It enabled me to complete my communication to her and gave me a feeling of peace that I previously lacked.Participant in Yakima, WA11/05/2019
I have been through other group growth programs before--not necessarily grief recovery--and have also found them helpful. In particular, I am thinking of the Synanon program in the CA Bay Area during the late 1960s. It was very helpful for my growth. Also, being older and widely travelled has helped to develop personal growth of the type we are discussing here.Participant in Yakima, WA11/05/2019
The program was excellent! I have a much better understanding of how & why people grieve & why I was grieving so much. I am now able to get through each day much better.Participant in Summerville, SC11/04/2019
The program has helped me to see how grief has affected my life and others. I watch what I say to people who are dealing with grief. I also look at a person different now when they are anger or upset because they are dealing with grief themselves. I also look at the STERBS in my life that I use to deal with grief. I have been making sure that I don’t allow them to take over me. I plan on doing lost relationships graphs for more people in my life along with a letter.Participant in Aberdeen, MD11/04/2019
Don't wait any longer.
Time alone will not heal your broken heart.
What is The Grief Recovery Method® Support Group?
Our Grief Support Groups provide a safe environment for you to look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, which losses have affected your life, and take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain.
- It’s an action-based group that involves reading and writing assignments outlined in The Grief Recovery Handbook – 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition.
- It’s not a drop in group. You’ll either do an 8-week group format or a 7-week one-on-one format depending on your preference and availability.
- Each Grief Support Group is facilitated by one of our Certified Grief Recovery Specialists. Specialists come from all walks of life and professional backgrounds, but have on thing in common: a desire to help people.
- You will learn about all types of loss and you will chose what loss you want to focus upon.
- The Grief Recovery Method is a scientifically tested Evidence Based Program that provides grievers with a tried and true method that has been continuously refined and used time and time again over the last 40+ years, across multiple countries, and in multiple languages, to help them heal from loss(es).
- You will learn about all types of loss and you will choose what loss you want to focus upon.
The Grief Recovery Method Support Group, developed and refined over the past 30 years, teaches you how to recover from loss with supportive guidance every step of the way.
